OSC-Affiliate

Recommended Posts

Me again...hopefully for the last time for a while. I am getting better at understanding how these files work, because I have fixed all of the problems I was having, and (without any in-depth testing) it seems to be working.

 

I'm not sure where to enter my info, though, for the stuff that shows up on the catalog side. Which files should I be looking for, for the affiliate terms, faq, etc.? (I think there are a total of four that I need to edit.) Thank you!

catalog>includes>languages>english or whatever language you are using...

Hi,

 

I Have a big problem with this contrib OSC Affiliate 2.5a!!!

 

I can see that the sale is in fact made and is recorded to the affiliate_sales table.

It just seems to stop working when it tries to retrieve this information to the affiliate payment page (admin panel).

Obviously, no info being posted means no payments being billed.

 

My sales are recording in the affiliate system correctly (affiliate_payment_status_ID=0).

My affiliate_payment_status Table is correct.

My affiliate configuration is at 0 day.

 

In fact affiliate_payment is always empty !!

 

Any ideas ?

I've just noticed that the Paypal Shopping Cart IPN contribution comes with notes on how to integrqate it with oscaffiliate. I'm going to give those a try and see if they work with my version.

 

I've got PayPal IPN 2.8 installed...

 

Do you know if the osC-Affiliate Integration Notes from V3.0 will be compatible with the version I'm running?

 

<please let them be> :-)

 

Thanks

It appears not :( I just amended the orders_session_info table as per the readme file and also updated the catalog/includes/affiliate_checkout_process.php file as instructed however still no sales recorded on returning from PayPal.

 

What a frustrating problem...

 

Anyopne have any further ideas about which way to try?

 

Thanks

The problem is that when the customer choose "Cash on Delivery", when they submit the order, i get this error (Insted of been redirected to the finnish page):

Maybe it's too late for an answer, but maybe someone else will find this usefull... I have Affiliates 2.5a on osC MS2.

 

[...]

 

$a_password = tep_db_prepare_input($HTTP_POST_VARS['a_password']);

 

Add this two lines:

 

$a_confirmation = tep_db_prepare_input($HTTP_POST_VARS['a_confirmation']);

$a_agb = tep_db_prepare_input($HTTP_POST_VARS['a_agb']);

 

...this should do the trick. Goodluck :thumbsup:

 

YES!!!! Your solution has been really usefull. Thanks a lot.

Can someone help me with a new osc affiliate install. Everything seems to be working and I can even set all the options in the admin section. When I try to signup as an affiliate though it keeps telling me I need to accept the agreement even when I have checked the box. All my info is returned in the form allready filled, not sure if this means anything, but I can not create an affiliate at all. I did go thru and rerun by line all the sql entries. I am using osc 2.2 ms2

 

Thanks for your time

This should not be an issue. The affiliate paypout works from the order total which is taken just before the order is passed to the database

Sounds like a required field is not getting submitted

 

What version of the module are you using and what version osC?

Hi there,

 

I have just finished uploading osc affiliate in to my store. Admin panel looks fine.

 

What I need to do now is when a new customer creates an account, is have a field where they enter the customer code of the person who refered them.

 

Can this work with osc affiliate?

 

Thanks,

Ally

Okay, I figured out I had a wee bug in that I was using Column Controler and didn't have a left column displayed by default (should have picked up on that quicker though).

 

So every thing looks good, just added in my first affiliate.

 

I still want to be able to add a tick box at create account of a normal create_account.php, would I then just add all there details to the affiliate tables and the same with account_edit.php

 

The main thing I've been asked to do though is rather than having banners etc for click through conversions is the ability to send an email to a friend with my affiliate number (customer id) and then when the person creates there account is put in the affiliate number (customer id).

 

Any tips on the above would be very appreciated.

 

Thanks,

Ally

Hello,

I am in the process of adding a few functionality to this contribution because of the requirement of our platform.

 

To be brief, one of the main change is a pay-per-click affiliation.

Looking at the code in affiliate_application_top, I can see that records are added to the clickthrough table when someone arrive on the site from an affiliate referer, if a ref=xx is found in the URL.

Looking at my table though, i realsied that most of the time 2 records are inserted for a same date and time. One where the refererer is given, the other one it is empty.

I also noticed quiet a few records where I never get a referer for the given ip.

 

So my question is rather simple, how can I count the number of unique click per ip ? Do i count only the one with referer, or do I count only the click per ip grouping it per day?

 

If someone with good knowledge of the cloick loggin mechanism could help me out that would be great.

As soon as I am finished I will post my changes here as it might be useful for others who wants extended functionality

Hi,

 

What is the table field that records for a new customer who their affiliate referer was?

 

This is what happens: Someone clicks a text link, creates an account, buys the product. Affilate gets commision

 

Next week they buy another product and the original affiliate is given the comission (I want it this way).

 

I want to change it a little now though so that when someone creates an account from a business card or phone call they enter their referers is (affiliate_id) in an input box on create_account.php

 

What table / field should I save this info to?

 

Thanks

ally

Just realised there doesn't seem to be anything done through the tables, that this is all done through the url and it must have been that I processed a sale staight after doing a clickthrough with out closing all the windows. So I think I am a little in the soup now as I need to have this working for a dead line in a few hours.

 

Can anyone suggest how I can change things so that an affiliate always gets a commision after the new customer joins?

 

Maybe more like Multi Level Marketting than an affiliate programme but it is really what I need.

 

HELLLLLLP
